Encountered this problem today while testing an image upload AJAX script in tomcat. Later on I found out that the folder is actually protected Win7 and tomcat couldn’t write the cache or temporary file into the folder.
So anyone having this problem, check the following…
- What OS are you running? Vista/Win7?
- What IDE are you using?
- Was your IDE elevated to admin status?
So, check your OS, I’m using Win7. I was developing this under WinXP a few months back, and now under Win7, the folder is protected since it was under the “Program Files (x86)” folder group. (Argh!)
I closed my IDE, using IDEA IntelliJ 9.0, ran the IDE under “Administrator Level” and the problem disappeared!
So check those out first.
